The XFX version is black, which would have matched a bit better, but it has the crappier 8600 style fan, non adjustable, where as the evga has an 8800gt style adjustable fan.

I like your wire management but that 24pin power cord has the crappiest position on the mother board !

Id give myself 10/10 for airflow, and 8/10 for looks. I think people should rate like that instead of just one rating, because people do wire management for 2 reasons, increased airflow and some do it also for looks.

it looks sexy when they are out the of the way

when they are out of the way, the airflow is awesome

run your cpu power cord though the back through the hole by the psu and put it through the hole in the top, you might do the same with the 24 pin connector but bring it back throught the side. also your psu is upsidedown

other then that looks good ill have to post up some pics of my 690 soon
